On Skepticism, Melancholy, Friendship, and GodBook - 2009
Too often, Christians who find themselves feeling skeptical or melancholy are perplexed, troubled, or even ashamed. In Knowing Darkness Addison Hodges Hart provocatively argues that both skepticism and melancholy are not necessarily detrimental but can actually strengthen and deepen Christian faith. / Citing diverse examples ranging from Ecclesiastes and Job to Mother Teresa and Jack Kerouac, Hart shows how skepticism and sadness can inform faith -- and how genuine spiritual friendships can sustain those experiencing dark times. / Hart's forthright, engaging reflections will inspire readers to broaden their ideas about belief and thus find a more authentic faith.
